Cirrhosis is a condition in which the liver is scarred and permanently damaged. Scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue and prevents your liver from working normally. Scar tissue also partly blocks the flow of blood through your liver.
Symptoms can include the skin and eyes turning a yellow colour (jaundice), bleeding, bruising easily, feeling tired, swelling of abdomen and legs, poor nutrition and breathing problems. Cirrhosis also makes it more likely that you will get infections, and it can increase your risk of liver cancer
